  • Total:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 (1/2-inch-thick) slices white onion
  • 1 (8-ounce) package mini sweet bell peppers
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

1. Preheat grill to high heat.

2. Arrange onion slices and bell peppers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill onions for 12 minutes, turning after 6 minutes. Grill bell peppers 12 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove onions and bell peppers from grill, and let stand for 5 minutes. Slice onion rings in half. Thinly slice bell peppers; discard stems and seeds. Combine onion, bell peppers, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a small bowl.

Add fish to pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
